Litchfield County, Connecticut (Part 1)

September 20, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I took a trip to the Litchfield county and it still reminds me a lot of Vermont. Litchfield County is located in the northwestern corner of Connecticut. Litchfield County has the lowest population density of any county in Connecticut but is geographically the state's largest county.The county is mostly farms and small towns. For the laughs, I turned on my GPS just to see what insane route it would take me on. I already know the trip is straight up RT 7, from Norwalk. My GPS wanted me to go all over the place. WRONG!. Although, The route it wanted me to take was picturesque, No thanks. Off I go.. totally uneventful to Danbury except for all the A-Hole drivers. Once I got past New Milford I started to see country living.Driving along I see a sign that says "Covered Bridge". HU?. What covered bridge?. You would think the sign would be back far enough from the intersection to give you time to turn on your turn signal and turn right?. NOPE!. I turn on my turn signal and hit the brakes. The dude behind me wasn't too impressed or happy. As I start to make my left turn, some asshole in a BMW comes flying around the corner in front of me. I hit the brakes and stop and the driver flips me off. What a dickhead!.   
I stick my head through the opening in the bridge...

I gotta check this out.. Walking on the slippery trail I discover the source of the water...

I could spend hours here and lose focus of why I came up here so I get back on the road...
I had to stop and take a picture of Saddle Ridge Farm. It sure looked pretty. More to come...
